Hearthside Fibers is at it again: providing major yarn support with their beautiful yarns. I mentioned several design ideas to them, and they sent me these fabulous fiber-y treats.
First, for a one-skein knitted shawlette, their BaaBoo yarn in the Galway Bay colorway. It's variegated, as you can see, with soft colors that blend really well together.
I love the BaaBoo! It is luscious to work with, featuring Merino wool (the Baa) and bamboo (the Boo), and a smidgen of nylon, making it machine washable and great for all our fingering weight projects, even kids' stuff.
It's about 438 yards per skein, perfect for a shawlette or a pair of socks. Plus, it's really fun to say, "BaaBoo." Irresistible.
I also got enough BaaBoo for a larger knitted shawl I have in mind. I've got the Wingtips colorway (the grey), and a skein each of Grape Jelly and Orchid for dashes of color.
I've worked on a prototype--I still have some math to figure out to give it the shape I want, but I'm zeroing in on a plan.
Last but not least, they sent me more of the wonderful Polwarth and Silk DK weight that I used for the crochet Symphony Infinity Scarf. This time it's the "Extravagance" colorway, about 280 yards per skein.
Can't wait to wind this stuff and get down to some serious fiber play!
